Summer Time Crock Pot Chili

My Aunt Janice sent me this recipe and the one below. She keeps me up on neat and tasty recipes.

(good to serve with chips in a bowl, OR on hot dog and hamburger buns)

2 pounds lean ground beef
1-1/2 cups chopped onion
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder granules
1 tablespoon dried Mexican leaf oregano
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to your taste - hot)
1 teaspoon salt
Fresh ground black pepper
1 (10-oz) can Red Sauce (Wal-Mart brand)
1 (10-oz) can Ro-Tel tomatoes
1 (16-oz) can pinto beans, undrained
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

In a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion together; drain excess fat. Add chili powder, paprika, ground cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and fresh ground pepper; simmer stirring occasionally about 3 to 4 minutes. Add red sauce, Ro-tel tomatoes and beans; simmer about 5 minutes and then add the balsamic vinegar. Pour into small crock-pot and heat on low about 2 hours OR until the gang arrives.
